The World is not a Foreign Land

Drill Hall Gallery, Kingsley Street, ANU
This exhibition takes the notions of collaboration, dialogue and influence as its departure point. It involves Indigenous Australian artists working within localised histories of widely separated areas of 'remote' Australia. Their work stakes a claim for renewal and change by making a feature of artistic relationships previously unrepresented, bridging 'untraditional' media and eclectic traditions.

Colonies in the Slums: Toynbee Hall and Oxford House, 1884-1939
Wednesday, 22 October 2014 at 4:15 PM - 5:30 PM
McDonald Room, Menzies Library, ANU
In 1884, two centres of reformist effort were established in London's East End for male university graduates of Oxford and Cambridge. Built in the heart of the city's most notorious slum districts, Toynbee Hall and Oxford House were imagined as residential 'colonies' or 'settlements'. This imperial imagery implied that East Enders were in need of reformation and that the role of an upper-class resident in East London was comparable to that of a 'settler' in a British colony.
